Meet the Beacon Street Girls...
They're real, they're fun -
they're just like you!


Jamaican breezes are calling, and one hardworking BSG definitely deserves a getaway! But Katani's Caribbean dream trip may not be all soft sand and warm surf. When Grandma Ruby learns that the family's famous banana bread bakery is in serious danger, Katani's business savvy is put to the ultimate test. Spooky stories, dolphins, horseback rides on the beach, a mysterious old lady, and a lost heirloom add up to plenty of colorful island adventure for Katani and her family.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-7

Katani, the Beacon Street Girl gifted with business savvy and fashion flair, is on her way to Jamaica. A distressing letter informs her that Great Aunt Faith must have surgery and needs Grandmother Ruby and Katani to assist with her famous Banana Bliss Bakery. Thrilled to visit and help out, Ruby and Katani are concerned about the news that another bakery is attempting to run Banana Bliss out of business. And so begins this lighthearted adventure. Always jotting down ideas for future business endeavors, Katani is completely taken with the local color of the island, as well as its lore. She immediately connects with cousins Olivia and Selvin, but remains in touch with the other Beacon Street Girls via snappy emails and snapshots, describing the events of her wonderful trip. A number of unusual situations, from raising goats to on-the-shore horseback rides to the introduction of a mysterious old woman and a lost heirloom, add interest. A lively introduction to Jamaica's rich history, culture, and lifestyle.-Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA
